‘Walking in their shoes’ is an peer-to-peer exchange programme within the Connect South East London System Leaders Community. Participants will be matched with another community member from a different sector or profession based on shared interests. Each pair will then commit to spending a minimum of a day walking in one another’s shoes over a 6 month period.
The programme is designed to be flexible and to suit individual needs and learning objectives. Exchange activities to date have included: on-the-job shadowing, meeting your exchange partner’s colleagues or front-line staff, attending work meetings, paired conversations, attending events/conferences together.
Anyone that contributes to health and care in south east London is able to participate, regardless of role or experience.
The aim of the programme is to encourage cross-boundary collaboration and to provide an opportunity for system leaders to reflect on and develop their leadership practice.
